One Bite More

A little song for you based on tonight’s dinner experience and inspired by “One Day More” from Les Miserables. This is not really true to the original song – I was too tired and battle-scarred from forcing Lucy to eat to attempt that! Anyway, there still are dishes to do.
 
MOMMY
One bite more!
Another dinner, another calamity.
This daily road to insanity.
These children who never seem to mind
Will surely throw another fit this time.
One bite more!

LUCY
I can’t believe what she cooked today.
Does she think I’m blind or that trusting?

MOMMY
One bite more!

LUCY & WILL
Tomorrow it will likely be the same.
More peas and carrots, how disgusting!

DADDY
One more traffic-filled drive home…

LUCY & WILL
Will we ever eat again?

DADDY
I’ll miss dinner, that’s good. No sharing.

LUCY & WILL
We were born to eat junk food!

DADDY
Sitting with my full plate all alone…

LUCY & WILL
We want chocolate. Mom’s so rude.

DADDY
No one little in my hair!

MOMMY
One bite more!

GIGI
One more day until I see them.
Gigi loves them second to none.
I’ll be ready for my babies.
Ice cream, pretzels – so much fun!

MOMMY
One bite more!

LUCY & WILL
Tomorrow Gigi will let us have our way!

MOMMY
Tomorrow you’ll eat what I say.
Dinner feels like judgment day.

ALL
Tomorrow we'll discover
What the crock pot has in store!
One more try!
One more sigh!
One bite more!
